'True Blood' Star

Marriage Sucks

Files For Divorce

"True Blood" star Rutina Wesley is ending her marriage, but she's taking steps to make sure she's not sucked dry ...  TMZ has learned.

The actress -- who plays Tara on the show -- filed divorce docs to end her 8-year-marriage to actor Jacob Fishel ... citing the go-to reason -- irreconcilable differences.

Rutina is more successful than Fishel and presumably pulls in a lot more bank, but she's asking the judge to reject any claim he might make for spousal support.

Rutina and Jacob met at Juilliard back when they were students ... and tied the knot when they graduated in June, 2005.  They have no kids.

Sorry, if you started your marriage when you both had nothing and now one of you is successful - assets are community property in a divorce. Women should have to pay the same as a man, in similar cir***stances. (I am a woman and fair is fair)

They've been married for 8 years...before she was famous...and yet she still kept her maiden name when she got famous. That should've told you something.

It will be interesting to find out if the courts do not give a 50/50 split and alimony. They are so fast to do it for women, lets see if they do it for a guy.

She won't have to pay him a dime, but if it were the other way around, she'd be rewarded with half of everything that he has.

now now now....why is it when the woman makes more money she feels that it's fair not to have to pay alimony, but when the make makes more she has a sense of entitlement to half of his cash......women want equal rights so they should have to get this the same way it would come down on a man

So, if women suck men dry for marital support, why can't men when the wife is the bread earner? He supported her career dreams probably doing more housework and shopping ,etc, while she worked. so he deserves 50% of what she earned during the marriage. By the way, Rutina is the weakest link on True Blood. A true lottery winner.
